    Usage of "for" and "of"

    Dear Madam/Sir,

    I'm little bit confusing while using the prepositions "for" and "of".

    It will be helpful if anyone help me in this regard.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm a little bit confused about using the prepositions "for" and "of".

    It would be helpful if someone could help me in this regard.

    It would be helpful if you gave some sentences where you are confused as to whether to use 'for', or 'of'.

    For usually shows a purpose or intention: This book is for you. This tool is for pulling out teeth.

    Of usually shows an origin or belonging. This is Jesus of Nazareth. This is the mother of my uncle.
